Confessions of a Prayer Slacker book. Diane Moody wrote Confessions of a Prayer Slacker. The title is revelatory. The book is a mixture of advice, admonition, Scripture, and personal stories about prayer. I have mixed emotions about the book. The topic is very worthy of some serious thought, but she mixes in humor. Sometimes the humor is effective, but I thought at times it was strained.

I love this book. It has the essence of good self-published books: it's relatable, honest and sincere to the core, and the author shares her own experience.
This book is proof of why people should share their stories without waiting for approval from gatekeepers.

If you ever slacked at prayer, you should read this book. I found myself in many passages of "Confessions of a Prayer Slacker."

Here comes the best part: I judge non-fiction books not by the amount or level of knowledge they contain, but by action they make me take and the results I get.
I'm no slacker. I started reading this book while being several weeks into my renewed prayer practice. I stuck with it for well over 40 days without missing a beat. I prayed about one hour a day.
What is more, I've been a member of a church community for over 20 years, and I don't recall a single day in the last 10 years when I had a day without prayer.
Reading "Confessions of a Prayer Slacker," I got an impression that it's directed to slightly different readers, who are REALLY hopeless with their prayers.

And I still got two major takeaways from this book.
1. I decreased the amount of oral prayers.
As I said, I've been praying for about an hour a day. But I realized that my prayer was more of a lip service than true connection with God.
Now, I focus much less on the formal side of a prayer- which formulas to tell and in which order- and more on my intentions. I pray for a great many people, and now I focus less on enumerating their names and more on expressing my concern for them and their pain.

2. I added another 5 minutes of prayer into my days.
Diane convinced me that I should dedicate part of my morning to the intimate conversation with my Savior. I've already had a morning routine and not a small part of it has been spiritual, but she compelled me to sit still and think only about/ with Him for a few minutes.

If I, after 20 years in a church community and praying for an hour a day, could find a few applicable gems, everyone who cares about their relationship with God should read this book.
Amen.

This was a conversational book about prayer and the challenges believers sometimes have in engaging in a meaningful prayer life. The author shares about some of her own struggles and gives some practical suggestions for looking at prayer as a gift.

One standout concept to me was the reminder that prayer is not so much about changing things, but changing me and helping to hone my perspective and leading toward how to help others.

I rate this book as a three star because in some ways, it feels a bit like what I learned growing up in churches that encouraged routines and a daily quiet time. I actually practice a regular quiet time, but also bristle a bit at prayer being seen almost as a separate thing from everyday life. I think the author could have more deeply explored the idea of "doing life" with God--being in conversation with Him all day. Despite her efforts to help people let go of guilt, there were actually spots that unintentionally felt guilt producing (specifically how we would react if asked to give up a Sunday afternoon of sports/rest for prayer--in my opinion, God is in those experiences too.)

While I liked the conversational tone, it became almost a bit too casual for me and I'm not sure how I would define the writing style.

If you are interested in learning about an honest person's journey with prayer, you may enjoy this book.

I picked this book to read as Lent starts and I wanted to jump-start my prayer life. I have what the author calls, 'PADD- Prayer Attention Deficit Disorder.' And this book has some hard questions asked. I laughed out loud at so many sections and felt weak in my knees when she wrote about Briana's skit. How many times has Jesus wanted me to spend time with him and how often have I just lived without consistent prayer? Few statements I loved here, 'You don't play at a concert without tuning your instruments.' 2. What ever prevents you from God becomes God.'
James 4:8 was my personal call as well, so this book really lit a fire in my heart. For the start of Lent this book has emblazoned me and I do suggest giving it to young people who are struggling with prayer.

First off, I didn't hate the book, there were some useful bits and it did help reinvigorate my dedication to a personal relationship with Christ.
However, the writing is really lacking in the, "deep spiritual discourse" the author seems to want it to be.
It's basically all the platitudes and catchphrases of the modern evangelical movement shuffled up, and interspersed with personal stories that stop just shy of being intense or seriously impacting the reader.
On top of all that is a generous helping of feel good evangelical theology with very little depth or history.
Basically, if you've ever been in a youth group at a mega church, you've probably heard the kind of philosophy this book contains.
I didn't hate it, and I guess I didn't expect greatness; but it left me wanting a lot more.
Rigiot
One of the very best books on prayer I've ever read. I'm reading it to my family. The author writes in an entertaining style, but doesn't pull punches when it comes to pointing out areas of difficulty. Do you really want to have a satisfying prayer life, or do you want things to continue as usual? If you want to go beyond mumbling the Our Father and get into true fellowship under the wings of the Almighty, this book points the way.
